A household hazardous waste collection will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Boyle County Fairgrounds. The event is open to residents of Boyle and Mercer counties, and proof of residency will be required.
Items to be accepted include aerosols, pesticide liquids, pesticide solids, fire extinguishers, cleaners (acids/bases/oxidizers), reactives, fuels (gasoline, kerosene), transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, greases, oil-based paint, fluorescent bulbs, adhesives, roof tar and driveway sealers.
No used oil, latex paint or batteries will be accepted.
The fairgrounds will be closed to the public except for residents dropping off items. Gates could close early due to limited grant funds, so people are urged to arrive early.
